People: a Journey in Search of the Spirit of Ethiopia

Ethiopia surprises travellers with its unique ethnic diversity, resulting in an infinite mixture of traditions, habits and activities. While on every country road thousands of women carrying water confirm you are in Africa, imposing ruins of lost empires take you to the Middle-East and churches full of praying hermits to Europe's Middle-Ages. The portraits of this page are but a small fraction of those which Marco documented on his trip, which again are only a fraction of those millions he could see with his eyes.
